There are certain fashions that every woman should have in her closet. These pieces are timeless staples that can be used year after year, and season after season without looking as if you came out of a time capsule. One of my favourites in this category is the little black dress.
First, you don’t even have to worry about a matching piece because, well, dresses are that convenient (probably why I’m so addicted to them!). Second, the lure of the LBD is that it’s marvellous tone matches with absolutely any other colour in existence, including brown and navy. And that, ladies, is a true story. So don’t be afraid to go down that route. However, there are certain things you have to have in mind when picking that perfect LBD to add to your closet. Mostly, you want the dress to be in a timeless silhouette, and a fabric that you can withstand during the hot months and not freeze to death in during the winter months. Once you’ve found the perfect all-purpose LBD, you can keep incorporating others with different fabrics and textures to suit all your needs and moods.
Now, all you have to do is get savvy in making that little black dress look brand new each time you wear it. Taking good care of it will help, but I’m mostly talking about stocking up on trendy and seasonal accessories, and layering pieces that will make your trusty dress transcend seasons, year and time of day. This summer season, try pairing it with a neon belt and flat sandals for a Sunday brunch, or do a pair of metallic strappy heels and a statement necklace for a night of dinner and cocktails with friends. When styling your Little Black Dresses with the right accessories you’ll be able to transform it every. single. time. So be creative! Now, shop some of my favourite finds below.
